I am a Theoretical mathematics graduate with more than 10 years of experience tutoring students of all ages ranging from middle school through college. For the past two years, I have tutored calculus at The Ohio State University. From 2007-2019, I tutored ages 5-18 in various maths such pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, trigonometry, stats, and precalculus.
As a math tutor, I strongly focus on the development of mathematical concepts. By focusing on the concepts behind the math, my students are prepared for all questions on homework, quizzes, and exams. I specifically build trust with students on understanding that math is about the why and not the what. To help my students understand the why, I teach them how to break down each problem and know why they are using the respective math techniques. Once they understand the why, they are able to construct the what. The "what" being the answer to the math problem.
Ultimately, my goal is to increase my students confidence in their ability to comprehend the math and perform with the same confidence in the classroom.
